If you ever feel you’re the parent of a gifted child, get on YouTube to get back in touch with reality.
Think it’s great your 2-year-old can sing the alphabet song? There’s a kid on YouTube who can do it at 18 months.
Think it’s amazing that your 4-year-old can glide along on a balance bike without putting his feet down? There’s a 3-year-old on YouTube who can not only glide, but also fly down ramps that BMX riders use.
One of the latest “Amazing Kids on YouTube” was invited to the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” show in February. It seems 2-year-old Titus has an amazing aim, able to hit nothing but net when he shoots toddler-sized basketballs at a toddler-sized hoop.
Kimmel challenged Titus to a shoot-off and got destroyed — Kimmel got six in the hoop, Titus, 10.
As the parent of a son who is not enthralled by basketball, it’s true, I was a bit envious. But Titus proves that there are all sorts of kids out there with all sorts of interests and talents.
They’re all amazing in their own ways.
